Three business schools on three continents are to combine their talents to teach a one-year pre-experienced masters degree, the 3Continent Master of Global Management. The three business schools, Antwerp Management School, in Belgium, Fordham University, in New York, and the Xavier Institute of Management, in Bhubaneswar in India, will launch the programme in September 2011.
“We need to have young people who have a global outlook on the world,” says Philippe Naert, dean of Antwerp Management School.
The 60 students on the programme, 20 from each continent, will spend four months at each of the three business schools. In Belgium they will study issues relating to Europe and the European Union; in India they will study the differences between rural and urban India and work related to the base of the pyramid; and in the US they will study finance and issues relating to the United Nations.
The cost of the programme will be €25,000, plus travel and accommodation, but there will be scholarships for students from India, says Prof Naert.
